Nadia Dowhayko 1928 - Apr 20, 2020


Our family is deeply saddened to announce the passing on Monday, April 20, 2020, of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Nadia Dowhayko, at the age of 91, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Nadia was predeceased by her husband, Dmytro (May 23, 2004); and her sister, Anna (July 9, 2009). She leaves behind to cherish her memory, daughter, Katherine (Bill) Miske of Calgary; sons, Paul (Peggy) of Winnipeg, Wally (Susan) of Windsor, and Michael (Susan) of Winnipeg; 10 grandchildren, Nadine (Joe), David (Carla), Dawn (Vitaly), Jamie (Danielle), Nicholas, Sasha (Sawyer), Natalie, Stefan (Julia), Patrick, Logan (Megan); and eight great-grandchildren.

Nadia was born on September 17, 1928 in Hluchiw, Ukraine. She survived many difficult challenges, including the Holodomor (famine) of 1932/1933 in Ukraine, which claimed four million people, and of which she was one of the few remaining survivors.

Having arrived in Winnipeg in 1950 with her husband and two small children, a strong work ethic, family values, and faith in God and the Orthodox Church, helped the family achieve a life she could only dream of. She was an amazing cook, avid reader, and had an extraordinary gift for gardening. She will be greatly missed by all that came to know her.

Vichnaya Pamyat.
